There is nothing like having coffee with friends. I have fond memories of having for coffee with our neighbors not long after we moved into our first house.
The husband opened the cupboard and revealed an entire shelf of coffee mugs. He mused aloud about which person would like which cup ("Anne should have Walt Disney World and Dan, hmmm, let's see, Dan should have The Grand Canyon.") From then on, every time we had an impromptu cup of coffee with them, Alex would choose our mugs. He selected a different one every time and his choice often spurred him to tell a story about the vacation or the venue that the mug represented. It was charming, personal and I loved it.
Being thoughtful. Showing love. Making someone feel special. It is as easy as picking out a coffee mug.
